An Invitation to Schedule a Private FOCUS Session
Dear Friends at FSU:
Just look at news reports of the concerns about Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and the problems with
Pension Plans. When you add in taxes, inflation and fear of losing money in the stock market and real estate,
NO WONDER people are worried about their financial matters and Retirement!
I know that if you plan for the future, you will have a better chance of reaching your goals. You know it too.
Unfortunately many people will not sit down with a financial advisor and talk about planning. Why?
BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID OF BEING SOLD SOMETHING!
You know that managing your money in a random and haphazard manner is not as good as having a game
plan. You know that is true. But …
YOU DON’T WANT A HIGH PRESSURE SALES PITCH!
I don’t blame you. I don’t like sales pressure either!
That’s why I’m inviting you to come in for a NO COST, NO OBLIGATION, FOCUS Session.
In the FOCUS Session we will talk about:
Your Uniqueness, and
At the end of this 45 minute session, we will both know if it makes sense for us to work together. If yes, we will
schedule another appointment. If no, we will just say “Good Bye”!
Why am I willing to invest this time, create value for you, and risk not being paid? How else can I show you
that my planning service and products will create value for you AND overcome your skepticism?
For over 32 years my team and I have been advising people in how to plan and prepare for a Secure Retirement.
(I started September 13, 1975 right here in Tallahassee). If you decide to work with someone else, that is up to
you. This happens once in a while, but that is my problem, not yours. You have nothing to lose, so schedule
your FOCUS session right away.
Why not call now while this is fresh on your mind? You can reach us at (850) 562-3000.

Ruby Diamond renovation kicks off two-year construction project

EDITOR IN CHIEF
One of Tallahassee’s most high-

of concert-goers and students alike, is
about to undergo a major renovation.
The famed Ruby Diamond Audito-

rebuilt to improve its acoustics and to
accommodate a larger stage and more
thoughtful seating arrangement, which
will include box seats.
